struggling to find a job? >> reporter: romney said at a recent stop it is not about winning. >> mitt romney is the underdog and he will be ready on the issues which is what this is about. >> they say the debate will pressure the challenger. >> i think the debate will be interesting and they will be held to account for as far -- for more as far as the facts and details. >> reporter: both know the questions an answers can be costly. >> quite a few have lost an election with a debate. >> meaning what happens tonight could decide what happened. >> live in denver, i am sandra back to you. >> our coverage starts at 6:00 p.m. time now 4:46, they created a protest to ban sitting on sidewalks in the city's commercial areas. opponents shared ice cream and a kiss in front of city hall and they say it was a recreation of president barack obama and michelle obama's first date of eating ice cream on the sidewalk. it will unfairly tar get the homeless. a san francisco city leader is working to get people covered up and they are receiving numerous complaints about the naked people who frequented the public
on that front, mitt romney did a better job than barack obama did and he has to go into that second debate stronger. because the consensus is here that he had a weak night. >> rose: al hunt, was this a good debate as debates go? >> i'm not sure how you judge that, charlie. i think it's up to the candidates to make it a good or bad debate and i think romney did a pretty good job and obama did a very poor job. show i guess that makes it a wash. i'm not sure about mike murphy's point about it being a reset though i suspect he's right. but i would pick up on josh tyrangiel's point about the kerry analogy. absolutely right, i think it's a striking analogy but guess what, john kerry lost by the same amount he was trailing before that debate. so that gets to the question whether debates really have, whether they really matter that much. and i went back and looked at every debate and every poll before and after since 1960, and the only candidate who gained substantially from debates, jerry ford who blew the biggest debate night of his career. so i'm skeptical, particularly with a rather small gro
will come down to one thing, if governor romney explains that his plan to get jobs going is no different than my race in 2010. all i talked about what i would do to turn the economy around. it worked. unemployment has dropped faster than any other state. down 2.3 percent. last month, we were second to texas in job creation. my competition is governor perry. if he talks jobs, governor romney, he will do well. that is the biggest issue in our country. clearly, it is an issue in florida. we have done well but we still have people unemployed. a lot better than what we were but we still have a lot of work. >>neil: you reminded me at the convention and other times we have chatted, polls are fleeting and fickle. but it is interesting to me that in some of the states, swing states, the president made inroads and it could change over night. if -- in ohio, in michigan, in wisconsin, all the republican governors, all practicing turn arounds, all utilizing policies that would appear to be anathema to president obama but now the benefit seems to go to...president obama. >>guest: it is incumbent upon
. this was the big talking point for mitt romney is he will create these jobs during his presidency. but this is already an established number. that this is coming on the economic path that we're already on. >> effectively, yes. and the private economists and the cb o economists in their budget estimates have put this number out there. and, yeah, the path would allow for that, although we've only recaptured 5 million jobs of the 8 million lost in the recession in the last three or four years. so we don't know what that number is actually, thomas. it could be 12 million, it could be another 4 million. it really depends on a couple of things. will this economy continue to move? will it gain momentum? will europe and china derail global economic growth? is there a geopolitical event that slows things down and drives oil prices higher? we don't know. the estimate is that over the next four years 12 million jobs or so will be created. >> ron, jared, gentlemen, thank you so much. i want to point out to everybody as i told you off the top of the hour, we are watching two events expected fo
romney, that he did very well, he seemed to tie everything back to creating jobs, and that's what he needs to do well on to win this election, everything, health care, everything else was about job creation. >> i think we had a big upset tonight. 2-1, the american people thought the president would win, he lost. mitt romney came prepared to play, drove to debate. i don't think the president has been talked to like this over the past four years, and i think he was so surprised that romney was just sort of plat out lying, never proposed a 20% tax cut. we've been hearing that a lot. and i think that threw him off his game. it propels all of his campaign into the next debate. mitt romney could have gone down and this race would have been over. now we have a horse race on our hands. >> do you think democrats will hire rob portman for debate preparation? >> the ads in the campaign, so negative, and so nasty. i expected president obama to start bucking about bain capital, 47%. >> never debate on your anniversary, an important lesson. it just doesn't seem to work. the big change, president o
the top 3% are the job creators burdened. under gov romney's definitions, there are a bunch of millionaires and bill nars. donald trump is a small business, i know he doesn't like to think he's small anything but that's how you define small business. >> the reality is, it's not just donald trump you are taxing. it's all the businesses that employ one quarter of workers in america, the small businesses taxed as individuals. >> you are surprised to know mr. trump reacted on twitter. he said as a big job creator, i was greatly honored to have been mentioned twice during the debate. donald trump. >>> let's turn to another political debate. jon stewart v. bill o riley. he called in stephven colbert. he was brought in by two shirtless handlers to get him ready for the showdown. >> jon, you are in worse shape than i thought. i have to take it to another level. full emersion. fetch me fletcher carlson. >> what? >> i'm going to release this chicken. gorgeous, american into your studio. you must catch it. >> oh, okay. all right. once i catch the chicken, i'm ready to debate. >> no. no
think mitt romney doesn't care about the 47% or just have a different approach when it comes to jobs in the economy? >> i think that he can't relate. i think that he doesn't care because he spoke from his heart when he didn't know that the cameras were rolling. when he was on that garbage truck for a couple of hour, he knew the cameras were rolling and it's one thing to work on a garbage truck for a couple of hours for a show basically. it's another thing to do it every day, eight, ten hours a day for 20 years. >> joan raymond, it's good of you to come on the program, especially to get up early for us. let me bring back governor rendell and chip. listening to her and a lot of people like her, is that what mitt romney has to think about tonight when he's saying here's what i really meant? >> i think he does. i think the biggest challenge mitt romney's got to do is connect with those folks who think he's just a rich guy who doesn't care and i think those who know mitt romney the best, he's a compassionate guy who's done a lot for not only his community, country, state and church, givin
and this is shared by a lot of republicans, that anytime mitt romney spins isn't on the economy and jobs, tonight's debate as much he can, he's going to be time wasted for him. in the larger picture because that's the wedge that he can win. >> dan rather, always great to have you here. thank you so much. major garrett, i don't know about you, i cannot wait. cannot wait. thank you. >> i can't wait. >> thank you. >>> just terrible news out of syria where there was a horrific scene this morning. at least 33 people were killed. dozens maybe trapped in the rubble after a wave of suicide bombings in the main square in aleppo. three were car bombs. at least one building was levelled. another blast went off outside the chamber of commerce nearby. the syrian government blames the rebels, but activists say syrian troops planted those bombs.

,000 private sector jobs. so if obama is in fact a socialist, he's not very good at it. second in, romney's standard stump speech, we've now had quote 43 street months with ununemployment over 8%. we are now under 8%. and third, this is probably the most important for the campaign. the debate was only two days ago. today is friday. the debate was wednesday. but this is a big enough jobs report, striking enough, that it has turned the whole national conversation. romney could have used a few more days of momentum. now instead of having a weekend where anyone can talk about his debate, the jobs report is dominating the headlines. >> joining me now is a senior fellow and was a member of the president obama's debt commission. she knows more about budgets i think than anyone in the world. and sam stein political editor and white house correspondent. thank you for being here. >> alice, 7.8 is a lot better than 8.1 but it's obviously not as low as we would like. the progress has been somewhat slow. so when you look at the numbers, you look at the trajectory of the economy over the year, how do y
obama and mitt romney. >> the economy is getting better, more jobs are being created. we aren't where we would like to be. 7.8 is still quite a high unemployment rate. we would like it to be 5 or 4. there was a couple of months in the 1990s when it got under 4. that would be terrific. but we're not there. we dug ourselves a huge hole after the financial crash of 2008. and we had this great recession which took the economy down fast and at the time that obama took over, the economy was in free fall. and since then, it's gotten better. at first, it got worse at a slower rate. that's not a great slogan. but for the last 2 1/2 years, it has gotten steadily better in the sense that jobs have grown every year. every month. >> and sam, when you talk to the obama campaign, the particular way they see the voters who are going to side with them, or at least a lot of them practically swing voters, is what they believe, as alice said, we have a very deep hole to dig out of. we're not there but we're doing as good as we can expect to be doing. and there's been there important psychological barrier of
that most were generally vague. >> i think mr. perot did a good a job. mitt romney -- did a good job. -these debating parties were also held with viewing parties with from supporters in the east bay. >> there was a lot of focus on the economy and creating jobs. >> what is going on and i think that he will do well. >> as far as how he did with president obama? >> i think that there is a certain level of president obama is uncomfortable throwing him for a loop. >> much more on politics coming up. let us turn our attention with weather, f traffic. >> good morning. we are looking at decent conditions but not quite that cool down. with low clouds and fog and breezy. we could see that it is along the coast. those clouds are expected to come right back and. tracking that on fog tracker 4. with clouds right now and it will clear out but by 10:00 a.m. still along the coast. and making its way into the overnight hour. with temperatures in the 60s in san francisco. san jose, oakland. and 59. currently to the livermore valley. and starting in the south bay. 80s and los gatos and for the missmost portion
. >> i think mitt romney has done a fantastic job making points about his programs and what he has in store for the american people and growth for middle class, and fairness to every american. >> the republican watchers at this party felt their candidate definitely got the better of the president and according to the cnn poll it found 67% of those surveyed thought romney walked away with it. 25% thought president obama gained the upper hand. stay here for continuing coverage. there are two more debates at least. if you missed last night you can watch on our website in its entirety. let us know what you think on facebook, twitter. reach out to us. we'll share your comments. >>> a lot of comments about oakland athletics on facebook as well. for the first time this season they're alone in first place in american league west winning division in amazing fashion. they were five games behind texas with nine games left in regular season. no team in baseball history has come back from that kind of deficit. 36,000 fans pack the colosseum, standing room only, fans going crazy. oakland is up 1
a bird in the hand is worth three in the books. >> as you might expect, president obama and mitt romney saw today's job numbers much differently. >> today's news should give us some endirgement. it shouldn't be an excuse for the other sim to talk some political points. >> the truth is, if the same people were working on the force, why would the reality be over 40%. >> they have been out of work six months or more. economists say we need to hire $425 every month to make a dent. >>> another deadly officer involved shooting. only this time it happened in a usually quiet community in heyward. it all started this morning when police stopped a stolen car near briar gateway and vanned deer built street. what left next that a r left a neighborhood shot. >> i was inside of his. >> shoes and evidence markers. investigators pressuring and documenting the scene. it's the too familiar aftermath of another shooting. this one involving a heyward police officer that left the suspect dead. >> hi approached the vehicle. he ordered that occupant self times to show his hands. the suspect did not compl
: well as you might expect, president obama and mitt romney saw today's job numbers much differently. >> today's news should give us some encouragement. it shouldn't be an excuse for the other side to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. >> so it looks like unemployment is getting better, but the truth is if the same share of people were participating in the work force, the day that the president got elected while the unemployment rate would be around 11%. and that's the real reality of what's happening on out there. >> 40% of the unemployed have been out of work six months or more. that number did not drop last month. economists say we need to add 200,000 jobs or more every month to make a dent in the unemployment rate. linda yee, cbs5. >>> in one bay area county, why some cities are being forced to import other people's garbage. >>> a california man dies from a disease we almost never see here in america. how a sick bat triggered an international health scare. >>> a new tool to find the cheapest airline tickets. how strangers are competing against each othe
the president's job record, despite a rise in national employment. with the romney campaign, garrett, is the governor sticking to his guns on the economy, or do the new numbers change things? >> milissa, the only new change is governor romney is going to have to retire one of his favorite lines, is the unemployment rate remaining above%. we expect that line to disappear. but focus will stay the same, with perhaps a bit more of a target, talking about the deficit and spending. you see the slogan we can't afford four more years like the last four years. governor romney has been ham thaerg home in recent days. we expect him to do the same again tonight. >> how is the prep going for the next debate? any ideas as to a change in strategy there? >> well, milissa, i can tell you they've been essentially prepping for this second debate, which is a town hall format for more than a year. governor romney did dos of town halls, particularly in the early primary states like new hampshire where you have rambunctious comments from a variety of folks. that is something he was very comfortable with. i
,ons on tax education, and job outsourcing. now we have some breaking news from the romney campaign tonight. the gop -- gop challenger newsworthyfox apologized for calling 47% of americans victims. called these, "completely wrong." romney was near virginia for a rally. finally, we have learned mitt will test those good morning america one day next week. -- guest host "good morning america" one day next week. abc says it is in discussions for first lady obama, as well. whenever her schedule allows. the message if you plan on going to a national playoffs game. cooper.derson >> local families devastated by d.c. sniper attacks come .ogether >> i am bob ryan. the weather center. it is a mild night. weeks of this campaign... and more ads. you, in your living room or... what i'd say. losing nearly eight hundred... mired in iraq. nation we are... moving forward again. get folks back to work and... again. that with even bigger... fewer regulations... prosper. on the same trickle-down... in the first place. so what's my plan? manufacturing jobs... exports... that... ship jobs overseas. in half and pr
>> live from america's election headquarters, governor mitt romney saying america is in a jobs crisis. this, as the obama campaign touts a new report showing the unemployment rate dropping to 7.8%. governor romney citing millions of americans forced into part-time jobs and many who have simply stopped looking for week. in his weekly internet address, president obama says the new report shows the country is headed in the right direction. and new video out of israel showing an israeli fighter jet shooting down an unmanned drone inside their air space. right now, investigators are searching the drone's wreckage in the southern part of the country and israeli media sources saying it was not carrying weapons, but appears to be gathering information. and we'll be back at 6 eastern alongside rick fulbaum. >> paul: welcome back to the journal, editorial report. coming up in this half hour, the supreme court is back in session and promising to be another tumultuous turn as it references racial preferences and college admissions. could it be a potential pickup of republicans in the blues
really well at all. >> reporter: but governor romney still talks up job training. he backs personal reemployment accounts that workers can use to find training and job counseling. and he wants states to take the lead, not the federal government. there are now 47 different federal training programs, and romney calls that duplication a waste. >> all that money, all that overhead-- what i want to do is take those dollars and bundle it up, send it back to nevada and say, "you train your people for the jobs the people of nevada need and want." >> reporter: most of those 47 programs are very small and they're aimed at groups like veterans arans and the poor. governor romney would replace them with a fixed grant of money to each state. that would give states more flexibility. but that funding would come with some risk. >> in the end, it often becomes an excuse just for cutting resources, and we've already cut resources so dramatically in this area. the cuts are as steep as 90% compared to 30 years ago when these programs peaked. >> reporter: when congress gets back to budget talks next yea

for jobs for the american people. it has killed jobs. >> that was governor mitt romney wednesday night attacking the president on his administration's signature piece of legislatures, obamacare. so, mary, this is typically democratic turf. health care, where did romney score on that issue? >> well, i think he did two things very effectively. one was, remember when he first started running for president against, in the primary when john mccain was the candidate? he tended to like to talk about data, and we even joked how he was so focused on data. >> paul: right. >> this time around, mitt romney came out and talked about people he had met, a woman with a baby in her arms who told him how difficult it was, a couple that was not able to afford their health care. and you know, he, i think, made the points that he needed to make about the data, but he humanized them and i think that was a great achievement of his on debate. >> paul: health care distraction from job creation, you inherit a recession, a financial crisis, and instead of focusing on that, romney is saying, you spent two years t
nasty, who has the better shot at that? >> i think the president's job is to make mitt romney look like a cold tech no accurate. and basically the president will say he lacks empathy with the average american. for mitt romney it's going to be emphasize confidence. everything he has tried he has succeeded in, olympics, governor of governor of massachusetts. need a new person to take over the job because the current incumbent isn't doing the job properly. >> jamie: on domestic policy if they stick to the facts, who do you predict wins? >> audiences fax for in these debates in a variety of ways. it's not like a debating judge scoring points. it's the overall impression you make. the most important thing for each side is to avoid a big gaffe where every sound by the focuses on that. that is one thing you wanted to avoid. there is a delicate balance to be prepared, you don't want to appear like a robot but you want to make sure you don't slip up. >> jamie: who is watching and what impact does it have on the american vote? >> when the first presidential debate started with kennedy-nixon 50 ye
and infrastructure -- governor romney says we are going to build a 12 million jobs. what are you going to do? are they just going to come about? >> are you voting for governor romney? >> no, i am not. i'm voting for president obama again. >> charlottesville. go ahead with your comments. >> yes -- >> charlottesville, make sure you mute your television and then go ahead with your comments by otherwise there is a feedback. charlottesville, are you there? >> yeah, i am there. i am an independent voter. i moved to this country five years ago. i was a legal immigrant. when i came here, like president obama says, when we were caught, i did not have nothing to i worked so hard. i got the support of the government, and i am now a biochemistry major and in pre- med. governor romney is not telling the truth, like the president said. yes, he did not perform very well last night, but he was saying the truth. if you are president, if you are a candidate, you owe people the truth, because the truth has to serve you. if governor romney keeps with the things he has never set in the past -- he has been runnin
hit he had . and mitt romney responded to obama's criticism that corporate tax breaks would send jobs over access. >> you get's deduction of taking plans over seas. i have been in business 25 years. i have no idea what you are talking about. maybe i need a new account abt. you get a break for shipping jobs over case is not the case. >> i have been in business 25 years and translation you haven't been. i understand what business is all about. translation you don't. i need a new accountant. translation a new president. i don't know if that was all planned or spontanous. it really connect a great moment for him. here is president obama hitting mitt romney for not giving specificings. - specifics. >> he said he's going to replace dodd-frank wall street reform and we know which onings. he won't tell us . he said he will replace obama care and assure all of the good thippings that are in there and you don't have to worry . at some point the american people have to ask themselves is the reason governor romney is keeping all of these plans to replace secret because they are too good? >> i got
divided on how the president has handled this job. that gives governor romney an open figure he can make a strong economic case against the president to drive the disapproval rating up a bit, that would help him if he needs to change the race. >> john king at the university of denver where wednesday night's debate will take place, john, thanks very much. our new national poll, though, only tells part of the story. if you zero in on the handful or so of battleground states where the electoral college votes will decide the election, president obama at least for now still has a wider lead. let's bring in our chief political analyst, gloria borger. let's take a look at three of these states, ohio, florida and virginia. our poll of poll, we've averaged out the major polls, the reputable polls in those states. in ohio, 51-44. in florida, 50-45. five-point advantage. virginia, 46-44, it's a lot closer on the screen than the notes i had here. in any case, if you take a look at these state polls, as important as the national polls are, what's happening in these handful of battleground states obvi
romney's tax plan would encourage 800,000 jobs to move offshore. and so mitt romney committed a whole series of policies last night. he made clear that in that republican primary debate where he said he pledged not to raise a dime in revenue from the wealthiest americans to reduce the deficit and he signed the norquist pledge that he stands behind that. those are very important moments last night that will be focused on. >> jennifer: totally agree with you on that. one last question, ben ole buddy, ole pal just between you and me, when we get to the town hall debate, the president going to be a little more pugilistic? >> well, i think if we tweak anything, you know, the president had to make a decision last night. his decision was to lay off the economic choice in his -- lay out the economic choice and his plans. i don't think anybody expected how dishonest mitt romney would be about his. so i certainly think that will ensure that anybody watching that debate understands exactly what mitt romney's plans are e
jobs report while campaigning in virginia this morning. governor romney says recovery is still coming too slowly and the middle class is suffering. >>> it's a guilty verdict for a teenage who was saved from a fiery wreck in chevy chase. ricco richardson on two misdemeanor charges. but the jury split on the theft charge. prosecutors say richardson and three friends took a joy ride in march. richardson was the only survivor after the car crashed and exploded. >>> health officials are considering more cases of a deadly form of meningitis that spread through spinal injections. six states, including maryland have confirmed cases. five epeople have died nationwide. let's turn to the weather. >> apple harvest time and the other time, vivid, fall color. take a look at this gorgeous shot out west. new river gorge, west virginia. wouldn't you like to be standing up there and taking a look down. matt parker was. he took this image today and sent it in to us. gorgeous fall color and really seeing the maples and the oaks coming along right now. if you have any weather pics that you want to get to
interview. >> well, jon, there is no question about it that mitt romney did a good job of exceeding dramatically low expectations. definitely won the expectations game, right. jon: if he won the debate? that is more than exceeding low expectations, isn't it? >> i think so. >> but here's the point, the point is at end of the day debates about specifics. this was very substantive debate last night. even the president at the end thought it was a very good conversation but i think his strongest point throughout the night when he pointed out, you know, the governor romney's ideas apparently are too good to communicate to the american people. he wants to keep them a secret. doesn't want to tell us how he will pay for this tax cut. he doesn't want to tell us how he will pay for this defense spending. doesn't want to tell us how he will reduce the deficit. >> he did. >> he wouldn't provide any specifics that is still the problem. people are still waiting. he may have won on performance but he definitely lost on substance. >> i don't think we were watching the same debate. mitt romney said h
jobs created this month than last month. >> reporter: romney argued today's numbers disguised the fact that people had stopped trying to even find jobs. >> so it looks like unemployment is getting better. but the truth is, if the same share of people were participating in the work force today, today is on the day that the president got elected, well, the unemployment rate would be at about 11%. >> reporter: it is true that only 114,000 jobs were added last month, a modest number, but economists say a number of people were working, not just giving up trying to find a job. and numbers from the last two months went up. still, manufacturing was weak >> we're seeing a lot of volatility in the numbers on a month to month basis, so until we see a consistent trend in the numbers that show we're generating a lot of jobs and seeing a lot of people participate, you kind of take it with a grain of salt. >> reporter: while the market saw good news, some saw a conspiracy. jack welch, former chairman of ge accused the white house of cooking the books he said these chicago guys will do anything when p
to take a look at is the new jobs created that number 114,000. that is a pathetic number. if i met romney i go to the american people and say president reagan inherited a huge recession. he had a very dire economic crisis. he did the opposite of what president obama did in terms of cutting taxes and reducing government and deregulating and what his recovery look like, month after month of 500, 600, 900,000, over a million jobs in 1983. dagen: back to the original point, mitt romney has to avoid trying to discredit this number. >> he will not do that. [talking over each other] >> ronny isn't going to discredit or do what jack welch did but what he is going to say is the obama recovery such as it is and various other economic indicators you talked about which indicate it is slowing down and stagnant and might be slipping into recession. that is the perception that the average american and average voters operating with. dagen: perfect to see you. nice discussion about the number of people working that called the unemployment rate to drop below the 8% mark. eight hundred seventy three thousan
up. governor romney says well those top 3%, they're the job creators, they'd be burdened. but under governor romney's definition, there are a whole bunch of millionaires and billionaires who are small businesses. donald trump is a small business. i know donald trump doesn't like to think of himself as small anything but that's how you define small business if you're getting business income. and that kind of approach i believe will not grow our economy because the only way to pay for it without either burdening the middle-class or blowing up our deficit is to make drastic cuts in things like education, making sure that we are continuing to invest in basic science and research, all the things that are helping america grow. and i think that would be a mistake. >> lehrer: all right. >> jim let me come back on the that point -- >> lehrer: just for the record. just so everybody understands we're way over our first 15 minutes. >> it's fun isn't it?

jobs numbers are out. was this a bigged missed snunt. >> well, i think the debate clearly romney won. but i think the jobs numbers really do work in the president's favor. they're going to be a strong thing for him to point to. one of the arguments in the debate that romney used is we have to keep lowering taxes because growth is not on track. guess what? the unemployment number is ticking down. that blunts that argue am. i think the president has to come out strong with his arguments around investment and education and keep that momentum flowing. . >> let me give you some of the reaction that's been coming in. mitt romney's campaign issued a statement saying this is not what a real recovery looks like and he will create 12 million jobs. then this is what david plouffe had to say just a short time ago on chuck's show. >> i don't think we should focus on the politics today. this is obviously showing we continue to recover from a horrible recession. the recession wasn't an accident. there were policies and reasons that contributed to it. and, you know, reckless wall street behavior, ta

, including job approval rating, romney favorability and who wins on the economy. in three states the president had a job approval rating of 49 or above. romney's unfavorable rating was higher than his favorable rating and the president led omni on the economy. in three of those states, iowa, ohio and new hampshire. in one state did you have the president's job approval rate 49 or lower and did you have romney winning on the issue of the economy. that's north carolina. so if you look at it that way. and you go to our map to 270, what does that mean? and you put those four states into the respective categories? and look at this. the president, four short, 265, four short of the 27. romney a long way to go has to sweep the rest. we're looking at five left in the battleground, florida, virginia, wisconsin, colorado, nevada. this is where if romney does do what chris christie said he's going to do, the first places you're going to see it are in those five states left. >> here's the question, ralph reed, that's a lot of movement that has to take place to overcome where the campaign is
days before election day, mitt romney stumping in on the on stop negligent crucial state of florida. speaking at a rally outside of orlando, the republican nominee continued focusing on the economy. >> when it came to jobs and the e commune, he doesn't have anything to add to what he's doing the last four years. >> reporter: in the white house weekly address, president obama touted the count -- the country's unemployment rate in september. >> and on friday, we learned the unemployment rate is at the lowest level since i took office. more americans are entering the workforce, more americans are getting jobs. >> reporter: president obama in cleveland trapped governor romney's tax plan. >> mr. romney wants another $5 trillion in tax cuts that he can't pay for. we're not going let that happen. >> no. >> reporter: the president has no public events today and is off celebrating 20 years of marriage with the first lady. the campaign announced a huge fund raising hall for september totaling $181 million. republicans have yet to report their september totals. >> we're in it to win it. >> yea
advice to that. i always assumed that governor romney did a pretty good job. he occasionally got a little rough, but i think what the president ought to do is try to answer the questions directly. and if he doesn't, that's when romney needs to get after him. answer the question. what are you going to do about the debt crisis? but the problem is as i see it, the difference philosophically between the two isn't that tremendous when it comes to foreign policy. don't expect tremendous differences on the middle east. about what we should be doing there. or for the federal reserve or spending. so i think it'll be interesting to see if we get any factual good information on what these two gentlemen believe in. >> big difference on taxes. let's bring john harwood in. john? >> congressman paul, as carl mentioned, you had a rapport with mitt romney. when we talked a few weeks ago, you said you weren't going to fully endorse mitt romney at the republican convention because you didn't fully support him. what i'm wondering is, is there anything you can say tonight that would cause you to do that? are
in the blue. romney landing a number of job jabs on everything from debt and jobs and the economy to health care, to his green energy program, saying, americans, republican and democrat need leadership and he's prepared to provide it. the president, keeping his cool, said to be a challenge for him tonight, saying that leadership requires more than lofty goals trequires specifics and he didn't hear them from the governor. it was interesting to see mitt romney looking mostly over at president obama when he was making his point and president obama choosing to look at jim lehrer or looking down. what message do the viewers pick up on that? president obama looking directly into the camera on the subject of obamacare, wanting to communicate directly to the viewers at home, past the moderator. there was mostly respectful sparring in a robust debate. the moderator, jim lehrers was not nrsly in control, but not ineffective. this is the first time we have seen the candidates go back and forth. instead of hearing from a moderator, we got to hear from them. >> that's right. he watched a lot of the time
for jobs for the american people. >> the president faulted romney for being too vague. >> at some point, i think the american people have to ask themselves, is the reason that governor romney is keeping all of these plans to replace secret because they're too good? is it because that somehow middle class families are going to benefit too much from them? no. >> the sharpest exchanges over taxes and deficits. >> he is saying that he is going to pay for by closing loopholes and deductions. the problem that is he's been asked over a hundred times how you would close those deductions and loopholes, and he hasn't been able to identify them. >> everything he said by b. my tax plan is inaccurate. if the tack plan he described was a tax plan i was asked to support i would say absolutely not. i'm not looking for $5 trillion tax cut. i won't put in place a tax cut that adds to the deficit. >> 18 months he's been run on this tax plan, now five weeks before the election, he's saying that his big, bold idea is never mind. >> let me repeat what i said. i'm not in favor of $5 trillion tax cut, that's not
time trying to disqualify mitt romney as a rich guy who is outsourced jobs, killed the buy of the steelworker through indifference and whose wife is an open and known and practicing equestrian. that is not very attractive so when mitt romney goes on the tube last night and does what he does, it reassures the american people he is someone they can trust. this happened in 1919, when jimmy carter led ronald reagan and he painted ronald reagan as a warmonger and someone who could not be trusted and when they had their debate and ronald reagan came across as confident and reasonable the bottom goal out for jimmy carter. >>neil: what is the delay effect on a debate if there is, karl in a lot can change, with the lighter colored states not being as red or blue as they can be and the what do you look for? >>guest: well, i would not use the work prohibitively. since april, the president's list of hard states that are strongly in his column, that has dropped while mitt romney's is green. this is a very close race. if you look at the 91 polls that had have been in 30 days, thing of th

dickerson. john, what are the pitfalls that are facing the candidates possibly? >> for governor romney, he's got two jobs: one is to say why the president has failed and the second is to sell himself. to do that job, he has to be aggressive, kind of in the president's face. for the second job he has to offer something people find attractive so the challenge for him is getting the mix right. the challenge for the president is staying on script, talking about how he has been working for the middle-class and not getting knocked off by governor romney who he doesn't have a great deal of personal regard for. so he has to not look defensive. >> pelley: john, thank you very much. we'll be back later tonight with cbs news live coverage of the debate. that's 9:00 eastern time and 6:00 in the west. today secretary of state hillary clinton promised a full and open investigation into the terror attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, three weeks ago. four americans, you'll recall, were killed, including ambassador chris stevens. there are a lot of questions about what happened. margaret brenn
